    Hi, we are being forced to migrate from Skype for Business to TEAMS and i find it not user friendly you can't sort all your contacts by their status ?! It was nice to see only the people online that i could chat with, and not have to search a huge list to see who is available or offline. :-(

    Sorting contacts is vital. Right now it doesn’t seem to sort by anything. Just first or last name would be better than what’s happening, now. Ideally, give the user the choice to sort by first or last.

    chat groups expand each condensed group every time I leave and return to the chat window. How can this be corrected?

    Would love to have sort features for alphabetically as well as sort by who is online versus who is not rather than having to scroll down through all.

    Skype for Business allows me to manually sort the Chat Groups into the order that is useful to me: most commonly used at the top of my list. I need that functionality in Teams.

    Also, Chat expands each condensed group each time I leave and return to chat.

    I typically have 40 or so contacts in chat, all of which I communicate with at least weekly. The ability to sort alphabetically would be so helpful, and the ability to filter to who is on like would be amazing!

    My entire team requests the ability to move Groups under Contacts tab in the order you prefer. Currently, the Contacts tab is extremely difficult to use. Users need the ability to organize their Contacts in the order they want.
    As a Supervisor of two separate groups, I use the Contacts tab to check that both groups are Online before doing a group chat. At this time, I cannot move these two Groups next to each other to fit my needs. I would like to strongly request a Move Up and Down option for Groups under Contacts tab.

    I can't believe the ability to sort alphabetically and by online status is not available yet. This is such a basic feature, it should have been available in the initial release!

    Would be great to be able to sort the chat contacts alphabetically so you can quickly scroll to the right person.

    The contacts are difficult to find
    Sorting the contacts should be in the first release
    Beside this the names are last, first but the icons show the name as first initial last initial
    MS teams seems to be pre-alpha

    I prioritize my chat groups by those I talk with the most. Currently those I rarely talk to are on top. I would be nice to sort the lists in order of priority.

    I want to be able to sort them alphabetically. Now I have to scroll down and read all the names. And also I need the function of making unseen all the people who aren't in house/ available

  • MikeC commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Contacts in Chat need to allow reordering within Contact Groups. Currently I've tested on the Mac client, Web client and iOS. In most cases, the order listed is the order in which the contact was added to a contact group.

    In my opinion, at the very least the contact groups should have the option (i.e. preference) of automatically sorting them alphabetically. A slightly better way would be to give the user either a "move-up/move-down menu item" or an "up/down arrow" for each contact. IMO, the best case would allow the user to drag/drop the contacts into a more logical order.

    I want this feature too. Just tried it since moving to Teams from Skype and was disappointed such a feature was missing.
